I wonder if the person who made the mistake would still have a job if it was a goatse style image.

Only if you have a *ahem* "portfolio"...


I've been trying to get this stupid model plane to fit up my ass all morning...

1. Try a smaller plane

2. Use some wheel grease.

Than either relocate it somewhere far away or put it down. Better than being stuck in a pen for life.

I see Cutter in court after being convicted for first degree murder for throttling Rollinthundr, demanding the judge give him the death penalty instead of life in prison because it's "better than being stuck in a pen for life."

Watch Dogs Preview Event Attendees Given a Free Nexus 7

W.T.F.

That's pretty insane. So basically knock two points off any Watch Dogs review.

@ Jensen, I know you were replying to Cutter, but Beamer also kind of responded to me in a similar way. I'll make the prediction:

Oculus Rift sells more than one million headsets in its first year (starting the day CV1 is released).

85,000 Oculus Rift dev kits sold.

I still think that's an amazing number of OR dev kits sold. Bodes well for the retail product.

No it doesn't. The vast majority of people have no desire to strap a TV to their head. Ultra niche product at best.


I certainly don't think that it will be ubiquitous like cell phones, but the fact that the DK has sold almost 100K means the CV should sell in the millions. At $300 or so a pop, that's 100s of millions in revenue, on $200 or so in hardware ($150 for the screen and about $50 in custom hardware and casing). Unless reviews are universally bad, I will own one of these, and I think a lot of other gamers feel the same way. No, it's not used in social situations, but A LOT of gaming is done alone, and who cares if it's strapped to your face while you're playing Skyrim, or Crysis, or Star Citizen, or BF4, or whatever.

I'm tempted to buy one, but I'd rather wait for CV1. More polish, etc.

The share button sucks until I can share to sensible video services like Youtube. I tweeted to one of the VPs at Sony about it and he replied with "oh you can just put your video on a USB drive" as if we had been transported back in time 7 years. Sony was first to the whole share thing on the consoles and they're letting Microsoft beat them in features.

Does the Xbox allow share to Youporn? It seems like a natural tie in with the Kinnect.

It lets you share Yourporn with the NSA, if you bang your GF in front of it.

The whole whistleblower program is a joke, and basically non-existent in the government. Been this way for decades. Blowing the whistle means risk of demotion, investigation and possible persecution of the whistleblower, no action taken on the issue revealed, etc. etc. Things only happen when you go to the media. William Binney and Thomas Drake are prime examples of this. Both men, staunch patriots, tried to work from within the CIA and NSA to raise flags about programs the blatantly violated the constitution. Nothing changed, and both were retaliated against. So they went to the media. And of course both were investigated, threatened, and arrested.

It's impossible to blame Snowden for his actions. There was no way for him to do this internally. Nothing would have happened except he would have been fired and lost his security clearance. He basically sacrificed his life as he knew it (did you SEE the girl he left behind?) to bring these issues forward. His actions in this regard are as effective as Daniel Ellesberg or Mark Felt (Deep Throat) and greater than that of Bradley Manning. His actions are a watershed in American history.

I am confused

Yeah, my first thought was "I think Blue meant to post this 2 weeks ago on April 1."

My second thought was "This is a typo. It's supposed to say 'Windows XP'"

Looks like it has $2500 to go with 36 hours remaining. With the big push that's happened over the past few days, it should make funding.
